Format variations

While the Danish version introduced the standard Survivor format in most seasons, many seasons introduced several game-changing twists to keep the contest exciting and fresh.

Division of tribes

Most seasons of the Danish Robinson Ekspeditionen is split out in ordinary tribes picked by the producers. However, there has been changes in the divisions of the tribes. Many of those has been criticized by the audience, which caused the show to go on hiatus for a year between 2011-2013.

The following seasons has an un-ordinary division of tribes:

  • Robinson Ekspeditionen 2009, where the tribes were split up in a 'Stupid Tribe' and a 'Dumb Tribe'. This was later revealed to not be true, and the tribes were dissolved and re-assembled.
  • Robinson Ekspeditionen 2010, where all contestants had to fight for their spot in the game. Five winning men were on the "Masters' Tribe" and the five winning women on the "Mistresses' Tribe". The masters and mistresses had to pick five slaves, male picking woman slaves and vice versa. Four people who didn't make it to the game were sent to the Redemption Island, Utopia. The slaves had no right to vote and had to follow their masters or mistresses orders.

Final Challenge

Instead of a jury, the final three contestants participate in a Final Challenge. This is usually a huge challenge, mixing together most of the other challenges from throughout the season.

The Plank, 2013

The Plank is a recurring challenge in Robinson Ekspeditionen. It requires the contestants to stand on a plank or pole for as long as possible. It usually appears as one of the last challenges in a season. In 2014, the Final Challenge was instead The Plank, which created a lot of controversy among the fans.

Death Battle

In 2015, 2016 and 2017, the Death Battle has been a recurring twist. In 2015, it was known as "partner battle". The rules vary, but it is generally one or more contestants from each tribe fighting in a challenge. The reward for winning and penalty for losing varies as well.

Teams of Individuals

In 2016 and 2017, the merge was replaced with a twist to the tribes. The two teams now acted as two individual merged tribes. They competed against each other for immunity, and the losing tribe would then fight in a challenge for Individual Immunity and go to Tribal Council. Because of this, the actual merge would appear much later than usual.
